Campaign Overview: #AHomeForEveryone aims to spread awareness of Foča’s ethnic and religious diversity and inclusion by showcasing images of religious significance (from both Islam and Christianity) and of the post-conflict reconstruction of religious buildings found throughout the town. Building a common sense of purpose and identity is at the core of this campaign’s message. By featuring photo stories and viewpoints related to diversity from local youth interviewees #AHomeForEveryone shows that inter-religious and interethnic tolerance and cooperation are possible, even in places where atrocity and ethnic conflict has previously occurred.
